2015 Porsche Macan: Road Trip Hero

October 31, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

I have a rule: I don't fly to San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix or Las Vegas. I drive. From Edmunds HQ in Santa Monica these drives range from a couple of hours to SD to up to seven hours to get to Frisco or Phoenix. Vegas is about five.

Last week I had business at Google just south of San Fran and some Edmunds internal business in downtown San Diego. So I fired up our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S and hit the road.

Great car for the trip. Supremely comfortable. Great navigation system. And plenty of go to get around those lane-hogging eighteen-wheelers. Plenty.

Plus, I managed nearly 23 mpg, which is the Porsche EPA highway mileage rating.

Whoever designed the Macan's seats, and its seating position, should get a big fat raise. Both are perfect. Even after nearly six hours of continuous driving it was only my bladder that needed a break.

And there's no denying the Macan's cool factor. It not only feels cool from behind the wheel, it earns thumbs-up from fellow travelers and compliments from the valet at San Diego's modish Hard Rock Hotel. Name another compact crossover you can say that about.

I think the Range Rover Evoque just got bumped.
